well....from the many threads i have read about university,results etc....i first have to congratulate you for your results!and tell you that predicted grades are really important....so if you wanna go to a uni with a*aa entry requirements,then you have to have predicted these grades.apparently many students get better results at A2 than at AS,so if u got As and Bs at AS im sure u can get A*s and As at A2 as long as you work a bit harder.Also,make sure you have a strong personal statement with work experience and all that.i am sure you will get offers from the above universities (even if it may not be from all of them )...i know i am not in university and don't have the experience to give advices about this but,lets be optimistici wish you the best of luck !!!!(Original post by tiajacob)
Hey sorry to twist this thread a little, but I also just received my AS results and am in need of some advice. I managed an A in biology (90%) an A in psychology (83%) a B in English lit (78%) and a C in chemistry (69% 1 ums off a B) I'm going to get chemistry remarked so hopefully I end up with AABB. I am also going to drop chemistry next year and take up the EPQ. Although I'm very pleased with my results, I had to do do 2 modular results in unit 1 biology and chemistry respectively in which I got a C and an E first time around. I'm not sure what my predictions will be next year but I'm just worried that I won't achieve them. Especially as there will no longer be January exams.
I am currently looking at applying for psychology at Nottingham (AAB), Royal Holloway (AAA), Kent (AAB), Cardiff (AAB), Exeter (AAA) , and maybe Bangor (280-340 ums) as a safe option. I am also considering UCL (A*AA). Do you think it is possible for me to achieve these grades and get offers from the above universities or would applying there be unwise? Also, do you think Bangor will be too safe an option? Which if these universities do you think I'd be most likely to get an offer from :-)
Thanks so much for any replies I really appreciate it
Have you done any of these?
